What can be patented?
First you need to find out if you can even patent your invention idea. A lawyer can help you determine the best route to take. For instance, inventions must be in one of the following four situations to be patentable:
- You can patent a process, for example, how to manufacture a product.
- You can patent a machine.
- You can patent articles of manufacture.
- You can patent composition of matter.
In addition, the invention idea must be useful, and you must prove that it can be made operable and not be frivolous in nature. This is a big way a lawyer can help you. Patent Lawyers are trained and educated to help you turn your idea into a patent and profitable invention as you can read from https://www.jpost.com/Special-Content/Get-Your-Invention-Off-the-Ground-with-the-Support-of-InventHelp-624132.
Somebody is stealing my patented idea
When somebody attempts to steal your patented idea and profit from it, this is called infringement. Your lawyer can go to the Federal Court and begin legal proceedings to prevent or stop further infringement. He might even be able to retrieve infringing items until your lawyer can reach a civil agreement. You will possibly get money for the profits they made off of your patented idea, the damage they made to the reputation of your idea and your legal costs.
You can sell your patent
You can sell your patent with the help of a lawyer. This is called assigning. The patent must be filled at the USPTO in your name and your lawyer can help you with the legal issues involved to protect your idea and investment as described in https://spacecoastdaily.com/2020/03/inventhelp-the-way-forward-for-new-inventors/ article.
